Need some expert opinions on a 2006 yamaha 450 kodiak, 4x4 auto. The machine has 15 original hours and the owner is asking 4000. Reliable or not, thanks

Take a look at the quad and look at the plastics. It will tell you how hard he rode it. Also check out the frame for stress cracks and paint chipping. Also means he rode it hard. For the most part I think they hold up well as a machine. I used to be a mechanic at an ATV racing store. Also shop around on the price. Nobody ever gets even close to what they pay out the door and Blue book is always high, no matter if they have 15 hrs on it or not. good luck.
